HANIF ASMAL

Co-opted Governor (Chair of Governors)

I have lived in the Syston area for many years, and have had 2 children that have attended The Roundhill Academy. I became a parent governor when my first child attended Roundhill In 2004. Prior to this, I have been a governor in many city and county schools. I am still the chair of a city primary school.

I have retired after 30 years as a Science teacher. During my time in the education sector, I have acquired a great deal of experience by attending many courses as a teacher and a governor and worked with many people in all sectors of education. I hope to continue to provide a good service with this wealth of experience to The Roundhill Academy as Chair.

SHARON RUSHIN

Co-opted Governor (Vice-Chair of Governors)

I have been a member of staff at The Roundhill Academy since November 1979 and a Staff governor for a significant number of those.

I have been part of the many changes to The Roundhill Academy in recent years; the conversion to an academy and more recently the conversion to an 11-16 school.

The school has always striven to give students a good foundation, both educationally and as individuals and I have been pleased (and excited) to be part of the team which has supported this aim.

I am proud of the achievements of the staff and pupils at The Roundhill Academy in education, sport and all of the many activities in which they are involved.  I am keen to continue to contribute to the long-term development of the school where pupils are motivated to achieve to the best of their ability.

I am a firm believer in inclusive comprehensive education and think that a strong school should be at the heart of the local community providing education and development for all.

I am a Teaching Assistant and mum of five from Thurmaston. I’m keen on outdoor pursuits, and enjoy sharing my love of the outdoors.
